Cookie Crumbs

While I am finishing up my lunch time, I bring you today's blog. Today's blog takes on the phrase, "that's just how the cookie crumbles."

I don't think the world is out to get me, but sometimes, I sure wish my cookie would crumble differently. (Or I wish my cookie was another flavor...dried out, hard oatmeal just isn't doing it for me...)

To give you an update on my audition from Sunday--the one time I actually think that I may have made an impression on the director and might actually have a part in the play, they have to change plans. They are going to hold off on producing the play until some other time because they didn't have men try out for the parts, and only had 6 women try out for the 4 female parts. If it weren't for the men, the selection of women would have probably worked out.

The director has not yet decided on whether she will find another play for the dates that this play was supposed to run or if they are going to have to do something else altogether. She hopes to know something by Friday. Since I tried out, and said I was available to do a play, I'd like to know something because I may end up taking a vacation next month instead.

Today is enchilada day. In Corsicana, you can get cheese enchiladas for $2.99 on Wednesdays, and that is normally the highlight of my mid-week, and my social time. However, all of my enchilada buddies dispersed in other directions today. Had I known in advance, I would have made arrangements to take Peyton for enchiladas. Alas, I did not.

I ended up going through the Taco Shop drive-thru to pay $3.99 and brought them back to eat at my desk. While not bad, it certainly wasn't the same. Chips out of a bag dipped in taco sauce from a packet just doesn't compare to chips and salsa at any of the restaurants in town. But I shall survive.

For budgetary reasons, I was going to cut out my attitude adjustment this week. I thought that would be the responsible thing to do, but I changed my mind. Luckily, I can pay with plastic. Much to Dave Ramsey's chagrin, I'm willing to take on a little credit card debt for this cause. Not that I'm going to call him up and tell him this, but if he wouldn't understand my reasoning, then he just doesn't understand the value of a good attitude adjustment. In the words of MasterCard, they are "priceless".

I have to end our lovely little time together for now so that I can get back to the mess that is my email inbox and back to work.

If I don't come up with anything profound to bring you this evening, it is my hope that I will bring you an enjoyable tidbit from my life tomorrow.

Chao for now!
